British cargo airline One Air has taken delivery of its second Boeing 747-400 freighter. One Air commenced flight operations in July after receiving its Air Operators Certificate from the UK Civil Aviation Authority. The additional B747-400BDSF will support its current flying programme, offering full charter services connecting Hong Kong and London Heathrow.
The latest addition to the airline’s fleet, acquired on a long-term lease, is a former Air Canada passenger aircraft, later converted to a freighter for Air China. Before joining One Air, it was in operation with Aerotranscargo.
Since the start of operations, One Air has also completed cargo flights in China and Europe, flying charters on behalf of freight forwarding and charter broker customers. The extra aircraft is also expected to offer further ad hoc capacity for global charter services and the regular Hong Kong-London charter operations.
Paul Bennett, Chairman & CEO of One Air and the airline’s major shareholder, said: “We have enjoyed a positive start to commercial operations and strong interest from the international cargo market, reinforcing our view of the long-term potential for a British all-cargo airline. We are extremely proud to operate the only Boeing 747 freighters on the UK register and offer the aircraft’s outstanding cargo capacity. Our second aircraft has now entered service and increased our capabilities further – and, subject to gaining the necessary regulatory approvals, we aim to add a third B747-400F in Q1 2024. We already have sufficient demand for a third aircraft, so our growth strategy is on track.”
One Air, headquartered close to London Heathrow, has already built a team of over 100 airline operations, flight crew, and cargo professionals with previous experience with Cathay Pacific, Emirates Airline, CargoLogicAir, Norwegian Airlines, and other major carriers.
